#SoCS – Oops!


I almost forgot to post my SoCS. It’s been a month since the last time I did one. And it’s been a hell of a month. Busy? Can you say busy? It’s been busy.

And worrisome. We never did figure out what’s wrong with Alex, though he does seem better. He went for a walk with me today, so that’s a huge improvement. But he still says his stomach hurts. So who knows? Stress?

Stranger things have happened.


I’ve been paralyzed every time I’ve thought about writing something. It’s not fear, exactly, but it kind of is. Anxiety, maybe? I dunno. Maybe I’m just totally out of practice.

Or I feel like I’ve got nothing to say.

I can write fiction.

Maybe I should write a fictionalized version of myself.

I could be rich.

I could be thirty again.

And skinny.

And totally healthy. Hell, I could write away my tinnitus! That would be awesome.

My fictional self could have silence.

I could even write the pandemic out of the world. Would you like that?

I would.

No “oops” there.

Life would be perfect.

For everyone.

  1. Stress has a tendency to make any physical issue worse. But writing about healing and good things happening could reduce stress. I love your fictional ideas! Maybe Alex would help you make up a story with a happy ending. I’m very glad he’s feeling better and got to go for a walk.


  2. Linda, do you think Alex would give some hair to his old grandma Lucie because I am losing mine slowly but surely….! Love you all.


  3. Great post Linda we could all reinvented ourselves.💜💜💜

  5. I’m on board with writing out the pandemic for sure. I hope Alex gets full relief sooner than later.


  6. I hope he keeps on improving. Hugs


  7. I am glad Alex is better, but I know having no diagnosis must be troubling. I am on board with the tinnitus – write it out for me, too. Take care Linda. And try to get a little self care in the schedule.
